The dynamic American Top Team product scored a hard-fought, split-decision victory over former XFC champ Guilherme Faria in the Main Event of the organization’s highly anticipated relaunch event.
“I feel really good; I think the fight went well,” says Soukhamthath, who improved to 14-8 on fight night. “Obviously I’m disappointed I couldn’t get the finish, but that’s not going to happen every fight, sadly. (Laughs) Did you see how big that guy was? He’s a very game opponent, and I think I did a good job displaying my skill.”
Soukhamthath admits that victory was important, and it was crucial he didn’t lay an egg in the Main Event.
“It’s not often you get a platform like this, to headline such a massive event in front of so many eyes, and I had that opportunity the other night. I had to make sure I made the best of it, and I did. We won Fight of the Night, and we’re going to keep rolling.”
